Former Alabama Crimson Tide players stormed the the 2012 NFL draft and the free agency as well, but how long will it take for them to become productive? For five players the answer will be "immediately."

Like college football, the only thing that matters in the NFL is "The Big One," the championship. For players and fans of the NFL, it's the Lombardi or bust. As a result, individual performances don't matter much if your team doesn't win the Super Bowl.
